The notch for MacBooks can finally be used for something

If there is a distinctive and recognizable design element that is increasingly being installed in Apple products, it is this popular model. Some get it very much while others hate it very much. But although the majority have already passed on this design element that Apple introduced in 2017 with iPhone X It continues to stir up some controversy about its true usefulness.

Especially since the new announcement MacBook Pro 14 And 16 inches and new MacBook Air M2 who have incorporated it into their design just to put a simple webcam out there. And this is exactly the problem that Australian developer Ian Kane tried to solve with a new addition of his manufacture.

Hub for faster AirDrop files

This developer shared via his Twitter account his new creation in development. This is an application that allows you to turn your MacBooks notch into a real file sharing window. For this, it has developed a light alert system that flashes when the user transfers files that can be shared via AirDrop.

Once selected, files can then be dragged to the grade and dropped to automatically bring up an AirDrop window with the files ready to be sent. An orange light indication turns on when files are selected and turns green once documents have reached the grade.

An app that offers significant time savings and a first-class “visual utility”

This app is not available for MacBook For now, but its creator hopes to soon be able to offer a version with limited access via the developer tool test trip in the coming days. First of all, he would like to make sure that he can run his app on other devices, but also on Mac models that don’t have a notch.

This shortcut seems very efficient and should save time compared to What does Apple offer? to access this feature. Currently, transferring a file via AirDrop requires an additional step that requires the user to first click on the “Share” option before being able to access the sharing window.

So this shortcut seems like a good way to improve the sharing experience on Mac. It would be nicer if it was only activated when the user hovered over files near the slit to avoid unnecessary activations. Anyway, this would at least have the advantage of giving another use to this good old slit.
